Transform and Change (Collages)

A couple of teeny collages that I created very quickly and with minimal tantrum-throwing.  These two behaved themselves very well and didn’t cause me any issues.  Even the stamped letters cooperated and didn’t go too squiffy.  I sometimes think I should just stick to butterfly collages because they rarely cause me problems and are much better for my blood pressure 🙂

Having real problems getting any matt gel medium which is driving me nutty… Everyone seems to have run out or just doesn’t stock it or has inferior brands which I have already had the misfortune of trialling.  And don’t get me started on Mod Podge – not a fan (after having just bought a big tub of it).  So I am eking out the last little bit of gel medium I have until I can source some more.  Not exactly an Earth-shattering problem, considering everything else that is happening in our world right now but still…it’s cramping my creative style dammit!

So, these little collages were done quickly and with minimum impact on my dwindling supply of gel medium.  Which is important in my little corner of the Universe.  I’d give up all the gel medium in the world to help all those people struggling with the hurricane in the U.S. though.   So awful 😦   I keep hearing the reports on the radio and it is so distressing, as it was with Katrina.  I can only imagine how terrifying it all is to be in the midst of it.  Wish they all had wings with which to fly to safety.

Quote for the Day : I am the Hurricane

“…I am not a Sunday morning inside four walls
with clean blood
and organized drawers.
I am the hurricane setting fire to the forests
at night when no one else is alive
or awake
however you choose to see it
and I live in my own flames
sometimes burning too bright and too wild
to make things last
or handle
myself or anyone else
and so I run.
run run run
far and wide
until my bones ache and lungs split
and it feels good.
Hear that people? It feels good
because I am the slave and ruler of my own body
and I wish to do with it exactly as I please…”
